I’m in London now, sitting in Ivan’s room. It’s been a good couple of days catching up with old friends. And, with travels, the space & time allows for much thought & reflection, especially coming straight after workshops in Penang. I’ve been thinking about my photography – my philosophy & ethos to this medium we all love.

Over the weekend, I headed up to Lake District with Aletheia & Eujin. And it dawned upon me that even being amongst the beautiful landscapes, my attention was still drawn to their interaction as a couple – that feeling of home that they had established with each other. Maybe it’s me just missing Krystin (this is the longest we’ve been apart), but to me, the most beautiful landscapes only truly resonates & leaves an impression when you have someone to share it with.

That’s when it hit me, I enjoy capturing home. Not necessarily the place, but the feeling that is associated with this word. Ultimately, it is the thing I value most in my personal life, hence the thing I am drawn to while making photographs.

And so, I leave you with Ben & Erin’s backyard wedding.
A favourite, not because the theme was different, but because their wedding represented their identity of home.
Walking into their home in Kew, it is as if you are transported in time, specifically to the 70s. Their wedding was an extension of that, quite literally, as their backyard was themed in the 70s to celebrate their union as one. That’s what I love about backyard weddings – the warmth of family, the honesty & vulnerability of opening one’s home, the organic nature of the day as it unfolds, the process that has gone into making a backyard into something beautiful & magical. It’s a combination of home & wonder; it’s everyday magic.

This is a story about everyday magic; my favourite kind. Ben & Erin, get married in their backyard, as if it was 1970. Enjoy.

It’s been 2 months since Krystin & I got engaged, and wedding planning has gotten well underway. Boy, has it been a journey. From having a vision, to actually implementing it while balancing costs & expectations from parents; the past few weeks has been nothing short of overwhelming. I’ve always known that planning a wedding would be overwhelming, but I guess I never fully understood the extent of it. I’m just glad that I have Krystin by my side & we’ve just been mindful that at any point, wedding planning should bring us closer together rather than further apart. I definitely have a new found respect & reverence for every couple; knowing how much time, effort & heart have gone into making each decision to make their wedding day truly theirs.

Jason & Kim invited me to be part of their wonderfully rustic wedding in Tanarimba, a tropical rainforest 1 hour from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I can only hope my storytelling invites you to be part of theirs too. Enjoy.
